Anil Kapoor is a proud father today. Sonam Kapoor's RAANJHANAA is a hit and given the way it is progressing, it may well scale higher status in weeks to come. Meanwhile for the Senior Kapoor, it is a thrilling feeling indeed to see his beti get her due after being in the industry for around half a decade since she made her debut with SAAWARIYA.

'See, ultimately there is a year when you are universally acclaimed and then there are years when you are there for around 60% and the rest is held back. Ye sab upar peeche toh chalta rehta hai. To keep your head high amidst such adversities is what makes you special,' says Anil Kapoor who has himself experienced an enriched three decades career in the industry.
Sonam indeed kept her head high and after downers like THANK YOU, MAUSAM and PLAYERS, she decided to hold on to signing films before picking up Aanand L Rai and Krishika Lulla's RAANJHANAA.
'If you look at filmmakers all over the world, they don't wait for an actor to see that 100% acclaim coming his way before sign him way. Woh aisa nahi sochthe ki jab tak trade nahi karega, hum sign nahi karenge. Those who have such mentality, woh peeche reh jaate hain. This is the reason why some out there in the industry are so hugely successful because they have that kind of vision to invest in you when they feel you have the potential to deliver. People out there believed in Sonam and the results are there to be seen,' says the doting dad.
With the film continuing to do ultra strong in the second week as well, RAANJHANAA is now all set to cross the 60 crores just from India, hence turning out to be Sonam's biggest grosser ever.
